Chiropractors [NOC 3122]

Friday, April 22, 2011

Chiropractors diagnose and treat patients' neuromuscular-skeletal disorders of the spine and other body joints by adjusting the spinal column or through other corrective manipulation.

They are also known as doctors of chiropractic or chiropractic physicians. Their medical practice is based on the principle that spinal joint misalignments interfere with the nervous system and can result in lower resistance to disease and many different conditions of diminished health.

Chiropractors perform some or all of the following duties:
  • Take patient's case history, conduct examination, observe patient and perform X-rays and other tests to diagnose patient's condition
  • Diagnose neuromuscular-skeletal disorders of the spinal column, pelvis, extremities and associated tissues
  • Treat health disorders in a natural manner through adjustments or articular manipulations and complementary treatments such as electrotherapy, nutrition, light and massage with special attention given to the spine
  • Advise patients on corrective exercises, posture, lifestyle and nutrition
  • Refer patients for medical care when appropriate.
Chiropractors may take any of the following sample titles:
